Apple, fennel, dandelion salad #foodie friday

This was a delicious, crisp, fresh and refreshing salad I made.

I used a tart apple and half a bulb of fennel. The (wild) dandelion I picked in our yard and out and about the neighborhood. Yes, I’m talking those pesky weeds. I now nurture our “weeds” in parts of our yard. If you don’t live somewhere you can pick them fresh, most health food stores now carry dandelion greens.

I dressed the salad with olive oil and a bit of salt and pepper. My histamine sensitivity is not allowing for any sort of vinegar or even lemon juice right now. It’s a bummer, yes. If this salad looks good to you I’d do olive oil and balsamic, if I could tolerate the vinegar. If you are sensitive to olive oil (some of us with histamine issues are) then use your oil of choice. I like cold-pressed hemp and flax seed oils on salads like this too.
